Storyline

Rose Despard saw her young husband holding an interesting conversation in his office with another young lady. Home she goes and confides her troubles to her maid. This shrewd young woman sees a chance of ingratiating herself with her mistress and making a few extra dollars on the side, so she advises Mrs. Despard to feign madness in order to bring hubby to his senses. When Ralph Despard arrives home things wear a terrible aspect. Here is the maid's chance. She persuades the husband to feign insanity in return in order to cure his wife and is rewarded for the suggestion by Ralph, who then behaves so very madly that Mrs. Despard has him conveyed to a sanitarium, where he is so roughly handled that he nearly dies. When poor Mrs. Despard learns the truth, she hurries off to the sanitarium, obtains the release of her husband, upon whom she has so completely turned the tables, and endeavors by her endearments to atone for her mistake.
